Tea Party Birthday Cake

For Josie's birthday she requested a chocolate cake with blue butter cream and fondant details. The flowers are royal icing the rest of the details are fondant.
She later told me the cake was better than she had dreamed of! I can't think of a better compliment than that!

Baby shower cake

Yesterday we had a babyshower for 2 of the couples in our small group that are expecting. The color scheme was green, yellow and purple so I wanted the cake to have those colors.
The cake is a yummy buttermilk cake with vanilla/almond butter cream. The cake is covered with and all details are fondant.

Tabitha's princess castle

For Tabitha's 3rd birthday she wanted a princess castle.
Both tiers (8in and 12in) are chocolate cake with vanilla butter cream. She's not a fan of fondant so it's mostly butter cream with the details in fondant. The cobber stones are gumpaste/fondant mix so it would keep it shape, the little white flowers are royal icing. The princesses are from Toys R us as I didn't want to attempt to make 5 princesses out of gum paste.
In the future I would love to try out a castle covered in fondant but I am happy with how it turned out and she loved it so that's all that really matters :)

Princess Bear

For Isabelle's 5th birthday she had a party at build-a-bear. She requested a strawberry cake with chocolate icing and that the bear wear a crown and purple dress.
It's not often that I do cakes with the basic star tip, but she didn't want fondant. I hadn't done a bear before but I am pretty happy with how it turned out.
